Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi everyone! Leslie Turner here, and I'm extremely pleased to have been asked once again by the lovely Karen Hightower to host this StampTV Weekly Challenge!

My theme for this week's challenge is "Fancy Your Fold" - let's see some fancy folds with 2 or more folds! No single fold cards allowed! Come on and play with us for a chance to win a grab bag of some awesome Gina K Designs goodies! Woot-woot! ;)

I wanted to make something special for this challenge so I created a kite card. My inspiration came from Splitcoast Stampers. This fold is so simple but sure packs a huge punch! I've made quite a few fancy fold cards over the past several months and I really, really like this one!



I used Happy Birthday Duo

Be sure to upload your project to the Gallery by 8:00 PM CST on Sunday, September 13th, and use the tag STV15MON36 so we can find your fancy fold project!

Let's have some fun - I can't wait to see what you create!

Scrappy hugs,

Oh Fun Challenge, Leslie.  I love all different kind of folds, your kite was is awesome!  Beautiful card!!!

Leslie, what a great challenge. Your card is Gorgeous, and I'm going to have to look up fancy folds and try this challenge! Wow. Thank you for hosting this week. :). <3

Lovely card and great challenge Leslie!

What an interesting challenge. I am with Karen, will be doing some research...

Your card is beautiful - love the fold. Have never seen it before. Wish I had time to play, we are heading West tomorrow. But I will be keeping an eye on this one!!!

Love that card!!  I've not seen that fold either...but am still learning new things with being fairly new to maybe I have just not found that one yet.  Not sure if I'll have time to play either, busy around here with canning still and trying to get some wedding shower things done...but hopefully things will slow down, so I can play with the challenges again!!  Do love THIS one though!  Love fancy folds...will see if I have any time later in the week or the weekend.  ;-))

What a fun challenge!!  Awesome creation!  Thanks for hosting this week for us!

You have interested me in this fun challenge, Leslie.  Hope I think of something to make. 

Thanks for all the awesome comments, ladies! I sure hope you all find time to play! I'm a fancy fold junkie so this was right up my alley! I've gotten lots of fun ideas from Splitcoast Stampers!

Man -O- Man…. I hope you all are checking out this gallery of Awesome folds! Wow! Beautiful creations going on..  <3  :)

Just wanted to pop in and say thanks to everyone who played in my fancy folds challenge this week! I really enjoyed seeing all your creations! I had a great time hosting and a big 'thank you' to Karen for inviting me! Hugs to you all! <3

I really wanted to join this challenge too...was thinking I'd have time this weekend, but I didn't.  And this whole next week is looking busy too, between canning and company so I'm bummed I'm missing it!  I do LOVE fancy fold cards!  :)  Hopefully sometime this winter I'll actually be able to join in on the challenges...if I don't before then.
